This list was created as part of a project that involved writing a comprehensive essay, based on many sources. For this chart we started with the primary emotions: Fear, Anger, Sadness, and Joy. Then we handed people lots of “feeling” words – 250 or more. Asked them to decide which primary emotion they belonged to. Then we reduced the list to a number that could be printed on one page – one handout.
